    Question There are sites 'from which/from where' you can download...?

    Hi there,

    Is it alright to say, '...sites from where you can download...'? I used to think it wasn't correct English till I came across it in Mr Harmer's 'How To Teach English'. Then, sure it must be correct, but just wanted to make sure we have such a rule in English.



    Thanks in advance!

    I'd use from which/where you can download.

    I would say that "where" is acceptable as websites can be considered physical places that you go on the net. Personally, I'd use "which" but "where sounds OK".
